Lawyer Promotes, Seeks Support For New Electoral Act

Ubani And Smear Campaign: An open embrace of corrupt politicians ...

Former NBA Vice President Monday Ubani.

A former Vice President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Monday Ubani, is passionate about having Nigerians view the new Electoral Act with the same big measure of faith and fervor he obviously harbours for that piece of critical legislation.

Ahead of the 2023 General Elections, Ubani canvased support and belief in the new Electoral Act while delivering a keynote speech at the 14th Founders Day Anniversary of the Bible Society of Nigeria (BSN) in Lagos, South-West Nigeria.

Speaking on the topic: “Elections – A Paradigm Shift and a Pathway to a Responsible Governance,” the former NBA Ikeja Branch Chairman declared that Nigeria is at the threshold of a new beginning.

The new Electoral Act of 2020 and the General Elections, according to him, would offer the country the opportunity to choose the kind of leadership that would redeem her citizens scattered all over the country and abroad.

Ubani urged the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) to perfect the usage of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) before the forthcoming elections.

“If we deepen the usage of BVAS and electronic transmission of results in the General Elections to ensure a fairer process, with the attendant emergence of desired leaders whose antecedents of virtue are well known, we might as well be on our way to total recovery as a nation,” Ubani said.

He posited that the new Electoral Act with its innovative provisions for electronic accreditation and transmission of results would be the game changer.

The leading lawyer submitted that, for the country to be put on the path of greatness again, the citizens must change the style and parameters for the recruitment of her political leadership.

Ubani said: “The parameters should not be tribalism, religious affinity, language similarity, blood relationship, school friendship, business partnership or questionable philanthropy.

“The Nigerian voters must be awake from their terrible deep slumber.

“The paradigm shift is that the voters who are at the centre of attraction in this new beginning must take into account virtues that can lift Nigeria to greatness.”

Noting that the next Nigerian President must be a global citizen, with the needed capacity and wisdom, Ubani added that the person must have the capacity to fix the country’s education and health sectors, as well as the security architecture.

Also speaking, the BSN General Secretary/Chief Executive Officer, Pastor Samuel Sanusi, expressed gratitude to the invited guests, who, according to him, sacrificed their time, went through the challenges of the scarcities of fuel and cash to grace the event.

Sanusi called for concerted effort to support the building of a befitting Bible House for the society and to support the printing and distribution of the Word of God.

Deserving Nigerians who have supported the work of the BSN were presented awards at the event.
